Geraldine Oribhabor is a photographer based in Chicago. Here’s how she started over and built her photography career.

It’s never too early to take charge of your life, to make bold moves.  I came here from Nigeria to finish medical school because I was really looking for that American dream. When my home country went through a recession, I had to figure out how to make ends meet. Someone discovered my photography on Instagram and asked me to take their photo. I thought, lightbulb — I could do this.  I booked my first wedding photography job on Thumbtack and this year I made Top Pro. It’s all coming together.
